Here is a sweet little wreath I made using some 3mm ribbon and the butterfly nature ribbon.
I picked up a plain metal wreath from a market in Henley. I gave it a rough and light coat of gesso and then spritzed it with some mists.
I generously applied matte medium to the back of the butterfly ribbon and allowed it to dry. This stiffens the ribbon and stops the edges from fraying enabling you to cut out shapes from ribbon. I attached my butterfly with glue gel.
Having the colour of the butterfly on one side and nothing on the other didn't look quite right so I added a few tufts of red to the other side of the wreath to balance it out.
I have used;
nature ribbon - butterflies
3mm satin in off white and lilac mist
